Journey Developer Exploring Other Platforms

Posted on February 28, 2012 AT 06:55am

THE BUZZ: Journey and Flower developer thatgamecompany has revealed its intentions to bring games to more platforms in the future.

“thatgamecompany had a three game contract with Sony, so the past three games had to be Sony exclusive,” co-founder and creative director, Jenova Chen told Push Square. ”Right now we are very much exploring ways to bring our games to a bigger audience, beyond just PlayStation.”

“We are still in the process of negotiating, but I hope that we can announce it [soon]. But right now it’s still in the process,” he added.

After this quote the Internet was abuzz with rumors of Journey, Flower and flOw making the jump to other consoles, the developer quickly shunned this idea by posting on NeoGAF:

flOw, Flower, and Journey are all owned by Sony. We won’t be porting them over to iOS, Steam, other consoles, etc. If Sony wants to do any of that, they can.”

“As for what we’ll work on next, we aren’t going to announce what will happen until we announce it, so you’ll just have to play the waiting game. We are very excited about this new game, just like with flOw, Flower, and Journey.

EGM’s TAKE: thatgamecompany has produced some fantastic games for Sony over the years and it will certainly be sad to lose exclusivity over any new titles. On the other hand it is brilliant for both game consumers and the development team as now more people will get to enjoy their unique games.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
